3 people have been charged in the strangling death of a young pregnant woman on Chicago's Southwest Side and removing her baby from her womb.
Clarisa Figueroa, 46, was charged on Thursday alongside Desiree Figueroa, 24, and Piotr Bobak, 40, with the murder of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui last month in Chicago.

Police say Ochoa-Lopez was lured to the home in response to a Facebook offer of free baby clothes. She was then strangled to death with a coaxial cable and had her unborn baby cut from her womb. The newborn is currently on life support and considered brain dead.
Ochoa-Uriostegui was last seen leaving Latino Youth High School in Pilsen on April 23.
Her family said she then drove to a home on Chicago's Southwest Side after a woman on Facebook said she had a stroller and baby clothes she wanted to give away, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Police then conducted DNA tests to determine that Ochoa-Lopez and her husband, Yiovanni Lopez, were actually the newborn baby's parents, Walker said.
